The Punjab boxer, who knocked out Commonwealth Games silver medallist Sagar Ahlawat against the run of play in the closing minute of the +92kg final bout in the National championships on December 1, was suspended with immediate effect on December 27 and was excluded from the National camp.

Following his shock defeat, Ahlawat had to follow the protocol and stay out of action for a month before returning to the National camp a few days back. It was a setback to Ahlawat’s preparations for the Olympic qualifier starting February 29.

Another Punjab boxer, Kartik, who had emerged as the 86kg champion at Hisar in the previous edition of the National championships, had returned a positive result for a banned substance and was not allowed to participate in the Strandja Memorial event last year.
